Why not just have a PowerBook with a hinge which allows the display to be folded back like a chequebook, then you have the best of all worlds.
msor, I dub thee: CLICK WHORE!
What would really be cool is if you could fold the screen back like a chequebook and use a stylus.
Powerbook: Two firewire ports (I mean WTF man) handle which doubles as lift better trackpad (some trackpads have features like scroll)
[quote]Originally posted by Nevyn: Just nitpicking. I don't think it is _all_ POWER chips. The original ppc601 was both a PPC and a POWER chip. Then they diverged for awhile. The POWER3-series & POWER4 series are back to running as either a POWER or a PPC I think.
The 601 implemented some extra instructions so a compiler could be made available, but I doubt it implemented the entire POWER instruction set (which would be Amazon+PPC)

Considering the 9000 is inferior to the 8500, who the hell cares?

What about rendering bezier paths? Also, what happened to OpenGL 2.0?

I didn't know they started the infamous Barto rumor

Gold is a cold metal. I don't like the idea of that. One cold morning and I could get a certain appendage stuck to it much like a tounge against a lamp post!
